Mark Zuckerberg calls out Obama over NSA spying

Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook today for a rare rant calling for more transparency from the U.S. government regarding Internet security. The Social Network guru expressed thinly veiled chagrin, saying he’s been “confused and frustrated” by the attempts of the NSA and other government organizations to access private information.

In a post, Facebook’s founder said he contacted the president to express his frustration at the government’s mass surveillance program Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post to the social network Thursday that he called President Obama in exasperation at the threat he believes mass surveillance poses to the future of the Internet. “I’ve called President Obama to express my frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our future. Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true full reform,” Zuckerberg writes. In a statement, the White House confirmed the conversation took place.
